Gluten-Free Wednesdays 5/12/10
This month the challenge is to bake a gluten-free cake. Those of you with other intolerances have a greater challenge, but I know you can come up with something. My apologies to those of you who don’t have help with eating a cake. Maybe you’ll just have to have a party! You could also consider making half a recipe and/or freezing portions of it.Thankfully, I have three teenage boys and a husband who keep me from eating too much dessert.
You’ve probably noticed the new widget on my blog that scrolls through recent posts. It also has a tab for Facebook and Twitter. I haven’t been very good at keeping up with Twitter, but I do post what we’re having for dinner each weeknight on Facebook. If you need an idea, take a look at that tab and click on over to Facebook where you can view the comments of others who share what they are having for dinner.
My submission this week is the blueberry cobbler I made for the Cascade challenge. I was thrilled with how well it turned out. Congratulations to Cindy of Wheatless Foodie for winning the Walmart gift card.

Love the cake idea ... I'm thinking ...
The gluten free cake challenge is going to be lots of fun. I have had a couple of ideas that I have wanted to play with and you have now given me the perfect excuse. I always 1/2 recipes the first time I make them, it saves money if it bombs and calories if it was a raging success. :D
I adapted the recipe from the Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flakes box recipe for Crispy Quinoa Cookies. I substituted two ripe bananas for 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup of brown rice syrup for 1/3 cup brown sugar. I substituted 1/4 cup safflower oil for 1/2 cup butter. I also substituted almond butter for peanut butter and omitted the optional nuts. These guilt-free cookies had a sweet and salty goodness without a lot of sugar or fat.
